The New York Historical Society museum is a hidden gem that lets you concentrate more thoroughly compared to some of the larger museums where you can quickly become overwhelmed.
Along with the many other museums to visit, the NY Historical Society Museum and Library should be in the top five on your list!

Tip: A guided tour by an expert museum volunteer is well worth arranging.
The planetarium is attached to the Museum of Natural History and going to both on a combo ticket makes for an amazing day.

The Nicholas Roerich Museum is one of NYC's many small museums.
I really enjoyed my visit - the museum is housed in a historic brownstone and two floors are dedicated to the exhibits of Roerich paintings and some of the artifacts he bought on his extensive travels.

Of all the Museums in New York, it is only at the American Folk Art Museum that we can regularly expect to have a very human emotional experiences if we allow ourselves to be open to it.
Beats waiting inline for the more popular museums during school vacation week.

A brief visit to this small museum (currently showing Swedish toys) was made even more delightful by friendly staff.
There were a number of artifacts from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London that I have also toured.
